Today’s card is “Procrastination” and this is what we can learn from this card.
Procrastination – X Marks the Spot
have skidded to a halt and, looming before you is one of the most insidious blocks to creativity and right action
ever known! It’s called the X factor. You know the formula: “When I get my car paid off, I’ll do X.” or
maybe “When I have more confidence, I’ll say X.” or could be “When I get X, I’ll change jobs.” oh,
and let’s not forget “When I lose weight, then I’ll X.”
Procrastination is the enemy now. What have you been putting off, by using the X factor? This is a time for action
and, no matter how logical your excuses seem, they are excuses. Universal law says that what you focus on increases.
By focusing all your energy on “X,” you have created a monster that is keeping you from the next step.
In fact, you may not even be able to see past all the apparent reasons for not doing something, to see what it was
you wanted to do in the first place.
Have you stared at your X’s until they look bigger than life, or your capacity to handle them? If so, it is time
to bring the demon down to size. Write down all your X’s on a sheet of paper. After reviewing them do a meditation
where you actually envision a huge X. Make it 20, 30, or 50 feet high, and mentally place it directly in front of
you. Then, shrink that bully down to size. Make it tiny, and imagine picking it up between your thumb and index finger.
Bring it close to you and look at it’s smallness. Then, deal with it as you see fit.
Perhaps, you can place it in
your pocket, to remind you that it is something easily handled, throw it into the heavens and ask that Spirit help
you manage it, eat it or feed it to an imaginary Eagle. Accept that you know the action needed now, and that you
have the strength to proceed. Trust that Spirit will assist you, if you take the first step.
Concerning your physical health, be certain that you are not putting off the rest time you need or stuffing your
emotions, waiting for an appropriate time to express – a time that never seems to come. Watch any tendency to put
off having your annual physical or monitoring your blood pressure. Take care of your needs now, or pay the price
